    While doing mine I decided to tint the blinker lens and the orange reflector with Rust-oleum spray tint, FYI dont use that stuff! They look bad and I dont want to try wet sanding them unless I have to, do any of you have some or know where I can get them? I mainly need the blinker lenses

    Will something like gasoline on a rag take the tint off? Or brake cleaner maybe?

    I'm afraid if I use chemicals it will haze the lens, if I cant get some I'm going to try something

    just use paint thinner and rub quickly dont let it just sit and soak into the plastic.

    Nobody has a pr they screwed up, I'd still like to find some. I tried mineral spirits and I finally got the tint off using 1000 grit wet sanding it but its hazy now, I'm going to buy a headlight polishing kit and see if that helps

    Things are all good now, I wet sanded with 1000 grit and mineral spirits, then bought a 3M headlight restore kit and it looks great now! Now I've just got to put them back together
